ENIGMA's C++ IDE in use with native look and feel on Windows 10.

The project is a code name used to refer to the C++/Qt-based ENIGMA IDE that is being developed. The project was started by Goombert to improve ENIGMA's UI experience and the stability of game serialization. The architecture of the project is loosely based on MVC and MVVM and is centered around the ENIGMA compiler's Google Protocol Buffer format used in emake and libEGM to load, save, and compile games. The Google Protocol Buffer format is treated as the single source of truth for resource data and is contained in a Qt QAbstractItemModel that makes it possible to map various views/editors to it.

The project is also licensed under the same License ENIGMA is licensed under, that being a modified GPL v3.

Features

The goal of this project as stated earlier is to improve upon the ENIGMA UI experience, stability, and scalability.

Some advantages the new IDE will provide:

Installing (Building) RadialGM on Windows

To Start

Update your MSYS2 installation

pacman -Syu

NOTE: This will likely prompt you to close the terminal, reopen it, and run the command a second time. In this case close the window, force close it even if it warns you that it's still running. Then reopen Msys2 and run pacman -Syu again. The first time it was updating the package manager, the second time it updates everything else.

Install RadialGM build tools (in msys2 shell)

64 bit

pacboy -S mingw-w64-x86_64-qt-creator
pacboy -S qscintilla:x
pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-clang

32 bit

pacboy -S mingw-w64-i686-qt-creator
pacboy -S qscintilla:i
pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-clang

Get RadialGM source code (in MinGW Shell)

cd put_here_whatever_directory_you_want_RadialGM_to_be
git clone https://github.com/enigma-dev/RadialGM.git --recursive

Build RadialGM ENIGMA submodule

cd RadialGM/Submodules/enigma-dev
make
make emake CLI_ENABLE_SERVER=TRUE

Run Protocol Server

./emake.exe --server --quiet

Open RadialGM project in Qt Creator

cd ~/RadialGM
qtcreator ./RadialGM.pro
